the leadership of governor and drew cuomo, new york state has become first state to act with tough new gun control laws covering a ban on assault weapons, a ban on those high-capacity magazine clips and a requirement that every purchase of every gun include a criminal background check. new york state has shown the lead. president obama will announce his plan with vice president biden today. is congress ready to follow the lead of new york state? boy, that and a whole lot more here this morning on the "full-court press." but first, we get the latest. today's current news update, was a ferguson's got it out in los angeles. lisa, good morning. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. that's right. we will here from president obama today, what his new proposals on gun control will be. he invites president beside -- he and vice president biden are making that from the white house before noon eastern. no package will be a call to congress to reinstate the assault weapons ban and to strength be federal background checks. obama has previously endorsed each of these
shooting tragedy. last night, lawmakers approved andrew cuomo's aggressive plan. and assault weapons ban and storing an assault weapon will now be considered a misdemeanor. and police will have a registry for people who r have assault weapons and limits magazine capacity to seven rounds, i hope you don't have more than three intruders in your house and gun crime sentences will be increased. pistol holders and weapons holders must renew the bills every five years and protects legal gun owners from having their identities revealed. and if-- after last night's giant gun grab my next guest immediately expressed his outrage. >> tonight, we preach about saving lives. not long ago, i think a woman was in georgia, she has several young children, her husband showed her how to shoot, somebody broke into her home, came after her, she shot him, i believe, six times. tonight, we're going to pass legislation that if she had eight rounds in that chamber, instead of seven, she h'd be a criminal. we haven't saved any lives tonight except for one, the political life of a governor who wants to be president
it the way that governor cuomo is doing it, through the legislative process, rather than the way the president has attempted to do it as he has time and again where hep finds congress to be rather convenienced so he bypasses them as if he doesn't exist. that's not the way we work in this country, it's not the way we should work. we have a constitution for a reason. >> karen finney. biden also did say that separate legislation would be required. >> sure. >> and i agree with guy. look, i would like to see some changes made. okay. i'm willing to see restrictions made. but i want to get your take on this. because we had a bill from 1994 to 2004 that had a lot of restrictions. including the semiautomatic guns. that bill was never extended, never, not under george w. bush, not under barack obama. essentially, karen, is not that bill going to have to be extended? that's going to be at the heart of this process. you can't make executive decisions alone. >> well, i think what the vice president was saying, there's going to be a number of different ideas put on the table and some, you know
of the toughest gun control laws in the country. governor andrew cuomo signed legislation that strengthened the ban on assault weapons and aims to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. >> background checks on all private sales -- smart, because the old system made no sense. if you want to a gun dealer to buy a gun, then you had to go through a background check. if you could not pass a check, u bought the gun privately. seven bullets in a gun? high-capacity magazines give you the capacity to kill a large number of human beings in a very short time is nonsensical to a civil society. >> meanwhile, u.s. president barack obama is expected to approve a proposal banning sale of assault weapons. it's been just a month since 26 children were -- 20 children were gunned down in a classroom. president obama is likely to suggest expanding background checks for all gun sales and pushing forward and assault weapons ban and limiting the number bullets that can be in a clip. no one is talking about doing anything other than registering the assault weapons that are already in existence in this coun
it is to enforce. andrew cuomo signed the toughest law in the nation dealing with guns. shooters at virginia tech and aurora, colorado had receive mental health counseling. under new law, they would have to report that information to a mental health director. that person would have to go to the state criminal justice establishment, which could then go after the fire arms. critics say this nullifies the doctor-patient relationship. we have a board certified psychiatrist here. what do you think about this law? >> nothing new here. in just but every state of the union, ia patient tells you that they want to kilsomeone or themselves, not only do you have the right to go and more the person or tell authorities, or commit the person, as i have done, in some states, like massachusetts, where i have practiced, you have an affirmative obligation. this is another executive order that is quite nice but does not change anything. that is the way that it has always been. those on the right who are talking about a new norm about the doctor-patient relationship, it is not. that is the way it has always been. >>

the place on gun control not just washington but also new york. governor cuomo passed the toughest gun laws in the country, it's going to get passed probably on tuesday. here he is talking about it. >> the first point is people who are mentally ill should not have access to guns, which then means you need a database of ownership so you can actually do those screens. mandatory life without parole if you kill a first responder. you need a background check at the dealer, you need a background check when you buy it privately. this is the first system that i am pleaments that and seven bullets in a gun. why? because the high capacity magazines that give you the extrasty to kill a large number of human beings in a very short period of time is nonsensical to a civil society. >> cenk: that's great to hear. sounds like his father again his voice sounds so similar to mario cuomo. he's incredibly pro banker, but outside of that, rights and gun control. >> i love how governor cuomo comes out with the sweeping legislation we've been pushing for, talking about new york, but he's incredibly pro banker. >>

, governor andrew cuomo signed it, signed it into law. parts of it take effect immediately. new york's new law bans any gun magazines that can hold more than seven rounds of ammunition. seven. it expands an existing state assault weapons ban to ban guns that are semiautomatic and have detachable magazines and that have one what they call military style feature such as a flash suppresser or a bayonet mount. it used to be you needed two of those features in addition to being a semiautomatic weapon. now you just need one of the features. also, as of now, you can no longer have guns -- excuse me, as of now you can no longer have guns that meet that description i just gave in new york state. but if you already own a weapon like that in new york state, you can keep it. you're grandfathered in. but you will have to register that weapon with the state that is the part that is new. the new law requires a background check to buy a firearm, which you need now if you buy at a store. but it also closes the loophole. so you will need a background check now if you buy your gun at a private sale. it close
